Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year

Develop a solid grounding in electronic and electrical engineering, and set yourself up for success. This new four year degree route (incorporating a foundation year) covers applied mathematics, physics and electronic engineering. Successful completion of the foundation year enables you to progress onto Year 1 of any of our electronic engineering or robotics degrees. You will experience being part of the University from the start, taught on campus by University lecturers and using University laboratories in practical sessions. You’ll take advantage of one-to-one mathematics support during term with our SUM: UP scheme. You will progress towards becoming a Chartered Engineer with appropriate professional training and experience. **Key features:** - Benefit from outstanding teaching: in the 2017 National Student Survey 100% of our final year students said that “The course is intellectually stimulating”. - Gain a solid base in mathematics, physics and the practical skills required for a degree in engineering. - Develop an innovative engineering or robotics project. Examples of previous projects include building an FM frequency bug, a small robot with on-board computer, and an electronic synthesiser. - Develop your skills as your degree continues with a variety of modules including analogue and digital electronics, microprocessors, electrical power systems and programming in the context of eco-focused embedded systems. We have a strong emphasis on both hardware design and software development. - Draw on our strong industry links and benefit from industry participation in course development, delivery and project sponsorship. - Develop highly practical skills and learn through doing. - Immerse yourself in a degree accredited by the Institution for Engineering and Technology (IET) and meet the educational requirements for becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng). - Benefit from free IET membership while you are on the course. - Take advantage of our flexible course, allowing you to switch between electronics and robotics until your final year, as your interests develop. - Advance with a course where our students are consistently recognised by industry as being both capable and well prepared for their careers. Our graduates regularly obtain placements and jobs at companies such as Allen & Heath, BAE Systems, Babcock Marine, GE Aviation, Jaguar Land Rover and Rolls-Royce. - Take part in our final year student project open day, showcasing the excellence of the engineering skills development and the high levels of achievement of our undergraduates, with many industrially sponsored prizes awarded. - Immerse yourself in hands-on laboratory sessions and a final year project module. - Make use of our well-equipped undergraduate laboratory space, one of the largest undergraduate laboratories in the country. - There is a possibility of transfer to BEng after the first year and MEng after the second year, subject to you demonstrating satisfactory progress. - Progress towards becoming a Chartered Engineer with appropriate professional training and experience. - Experience being part of the University from the start, taught on campus by University lecturers and using University laboratories in practical sessions. - Take advantage of one-to-one mathematics support during term with our SUM:UP scheme. - Discuss with your lecturers which degree to select towards the end of your first year of study. - The foundation year is an integral part of the extended degree. Completion of the foundation year will not lead to a separate award or qualification its own right but will provide access to Year 1 of your degree.
